Heating: The fastest swimmers from the last DPL meet will be given preference into the faster heats for this meet. Coaches may use the times from last years’ DPL meets if they need approximations for seed times. This can be obtained from the DPL website at www.dallasparochialleague.com.
If a coach does not have times for a swimmer for a particular event, please use a lettering system as follows to help insure better heating of swimmers.
A=Year Round Swimmer B=Seasonal Swimmer (Summer Only) C=Novice Swimmer
